Physical workspaces, training, formation, advice and contact with investors are just some of the benefits offered by the EAE Lab Incubator, which is just starting its third edition. Led by former students of the School, lecturers and external projects (with a minimum level of participation of EAE students), the initiative was created to foster the entrepreneurial mindset and competence of the future businesspeople that form part of the community at EAE Business School.
The aim of this entrepreneurship support service is for the incubated projects to reach a stage at which they are viable and ready to be presented to potential entrepreneurs and investors. To reach this stage, the launch pad offers a complete service for a period of 5 months (from March to July 2019) to the 10 projects finally selected. The service includes training, advice, accompaniment and in-person mentoring from professionals and experts in business incubation.
